The Tip For Making Tasty Toast, If You Have The Time
Crisp, golden-brown toast with a warm, tender interior is hard to beat. If you're not in a rush in the morning, try making toast on the stove for the most flavorful results.
Toasting bread in a pan on the stove gives you greater control over the texture, and you can cook it directly in flavorful fats like butter, ghee, olive oil, or even sesame oil.
All you’ll need is a frying pan, cooking fat, and slices of bread. First, preheat the pan over medium heat, and add a dollop of butter or a sprinkle of oil as it warms.
Once the pan is heated and butter or oil is evenly spread across it, add your bread slices and cook for two minutes per side, or until they reach your desired level of crispiness.
If you want something similar to plain toaster-made toast, follow these same steps, but omit the butter or oil. To get more creative, infuse the cooking fat with herbs or spices.
